Grading Policy

The course grade breaks down as follows: If you receive more than x points, you will earn a grade of at least a y, where the pair (x,y) is drawn from (720, A-), (640, B-), (560, C-), (480, D-).

Rough Schedule/Homework

Note: homework is listed on the date it is assigned, not the date it is due -- it is always due the following lecture.
Date Subject Homework
